Former Daily Mail and Daily Telegraph journalist David Walmsley has been appointed editor-in-chief of Canadian daily the Globe and Mail.
Walmsley has lived in Canada since 1998 when he moved from the UK to work on the launch of the National Post.
He first joined the Globe and Mail in 2006 and was the title's managing editor before leaving to work for CBC News as director of news content.
Walmsley will rejoin the Globe and Mail next week. The paper's publisher, Phillip Crawley, said: "David is joining The Globe and Mail at a pivotal time for our industry, as consumer needs continually change and the role of journalism needs to adapt.
"David will continue to strengthen The Globe’s reputation for outstanding journalism, including attracting and growing great talent, and inspiring innovative thinking."
